After Huawei’s inclusion on the BIS entity list, US companies such as Google have to withdraw the Android license from Huawei and therefore future smartphones by Huawei will not be able to use Google’s Play Store, and access to popular apps like Google Maps, YouTube and more.

Because of the potential to lose the Android OS, GizmoChina has reported that Huawei is looking into use of the Aurora Operating system in addition to Huawei’s inhouse “HongMeng” operating system, also called ArkOS.

Even though Huawei is already on the entity list, there is a 90-day period in which the ban will take effect.
